Reviews

"Warlight is a quiet new masterpiece from Michael Ondaatje...An elegiac thriller [with] the immediate allure of a dark fairy tale. In Warlight, all is illuminated, at first dimly then starkly, but always brilliantly." --Anna Mundow, The Washington Post

"If writers are cartographers of the heart, Michael Ondaatje's oeuvre could fill an atlas. . . [he] evokes a kaleidoscope of ideas and moods with exquisite lyricism...Warlight is an intricate ballet of longing and deception, and a singular ode to the mother-child bond." --Hamilton Cain, O Magazine

"[Ondaatje] casts a magical spell, as he takes you into his half-lit world of war and love, death and loss, and the dark waterways of the past." --Hermione Lee, New York Review of Books "Mr. Ondaatje has stepped into John de la Carr 's world of spies and criminals...his novel views history as a child would, in ignorance but also innocence and wonder." --Sam Sacks, WSJ "[An] intricate and absorbing novel. . . . This is a book rich with detail. The reader is bound to be conscious of a hidden ballast of research, the seven-eighths of the iceberg without which the thing would founder, but so deft is the writing that you forget this, simply appreciating the meticulous background that brings alive a time and a place. --Penelope Lively, The New York Times Book Review "A tender coming of age story so warmly delivered you almost forget how much of its plot involves smuggling, spycraft, and assassins...the novel becomes at once a mystery tale and an exploration into how much of our lives are out of our control, especially in wartime." --Mark Athitakis, The Minneapolis Star Tribune "Michael Ondaatje's novel Warlight is a masterpiece of shifting memory... a book made lush through layers of experience instead of description." --Bethanne Patrick, The San Diego Union-Tribune "[A] haunting, brilliant novel from Ondaatje...Mesmerizing from the first sentence, rife with poignant insights and satisfying subplots, this novel about secrets and loss may be Ondaatje's best work yet." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A lyrical mystery that plays out in the shadow of World War II...Ondaatje's shrewd character study plays out in a smart, sophisticated drama, one worth the long wait for fans of wartime intrigue." --Kirkus Review (starred review)
